Klimt02 wants to start a discussion about critique and show various perceptions, we chose different interview partners from the field of art and design. Working in art and design might seem like a wonderfully idyllic and relaxed career choice, where you have the pure freedom to let your creative juices flow. Each of them represents a unique view and gives us an overview of their own experiences. This is the second interview of seven.

We talk with Prof. Theo Smeets, who has been working since 1998 as the professor for jewelry at the University of Applied Sciences Trier at the Department of Gemstone and Jewellery in Idar-Oberstein. He is Head of Department since 2017. He studied gold- and silversmithing at Schoonhoven (1982-1986) and jewelry design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (1986-1992) in Amsterdam.
